Vontaze Burfict Deliberately Stepped On LeGarrette Blount’s Legs After Touchdown (Video)
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is making a name for himself around the league and it’s not for doing good things. Having already served a 3-game suspension this year for a hit that knocked Steelers WR Antonio Brown out of a playoff game, Burfict made more controversy Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Burfict is already facing a fine or possible suspension for this low hit on Pats tight end Martellus Bennett:

That wasn’t the only thing Burfict did that game, as it was revealed on replay that he purposely stepped on the leg of Patriots RB LaGarrette Blount after a touchdown.
